Bungie: We're days away from content complete, which means we'll be hammering on this game for the next couple of months to make sure it's the best damn thing any of you have ever put in your xbox.
surpass your deadline and make it better then you thought it would be in time for luanch
we finished half the game.... we'll sell you the 2nd half in DLC or maybe as anew game all-together... we finished 2 online maps... the rest we'll give you to in DLC.... cost of game $59.99 cost of attaining a complete game $119.
i think bungie has something epic planned for e3 :P i cant wait
"It’s a time of intense focus with a smaller subset of our huge team." does that mean that the other part of the team are now maybe working on the mysterious "new IP" maybe in time to release a teaser for E3? edit: maybe im just reading too much into it, lol...prolly meant the smaller subset is working on the beta release while the rest polished the final product
WoW 5 months to polish, Bungie really shines when it come to that.
"we'll be hammering on this game for the next couple of months" couple = 2, not 5 buddy
They're going to be Polishing(tweaking, balancing guns, and finds bugs)from may till its ready to release, so yes its close to 5 months or more
Saying 'next couple..' or 'next couple of...' can mean literal or general depending on where you are are from. So, in this day an age alternative language use,'next couple of' can me 'next couple of...or so'
Good to hear, plenty of time to polish it before release and make any necessary adjustments to the multiplayer.
Bungie: We're Days Away from Blowing People Minds
ODST had 5 months to polish and it came with no matchmaking for firefight.
True, but that was a Microsoft game not Bungie.
Don't worry about it, you don't even own a 360.
Very good Richard, spreading the truth around. Jacob would be proud.
They didnt include it because their engine wasnt able to. Otherwise they would have had it.
Bungie always intended for ODST to be an expansion. Microsoft took Bungie's submitted product and decided when to release it and at what cost. Bungie literally was hands off on the product for months before Microsoft's purposed release.
If you paid any attention, instead of just trolling and spouting garbage, you would know that Firefight is based on the CAMPAIGN framework, and not the MP framework. The two are completely different entities with very different coding. This is great news. Halo 3 was an extremely polished game and hasn't had any patches for exploits or bugs since launch. I expect Reach will be the same. That said, if there are bugs, Bungie will have them fixed very quickly.
Content complete doesn't mean that all of the game is done. The main content is in place and ready to be made all shiny and what-not. Don't think this means the game is done and all they're doing is touching things up. The content is all there but there's still plenty to do. Most of you are reading this way wrong.
